First settled as a penal colony in the 1800’s, Port Macquarie soon became popular with pioneers due to the abundance of fish in the harbour, as well as wildlife and fertile farming grounds on the land. Situated on the mouth of the Hastings River, the city offers an array of different activities and attractions to choose from, with plenty to do both in the water as well as on dry land. With the scenic forests and countryside to the west, and pristine coastline ready to be explored, Port Macquarie is an ideal destination for discovering a hire car, whether on a driving holiday, or simply collecting your car at the airport.
